UK Riots: Music & Film Industry Affected by Sony Warehouse Fire

A Sony DADC, major distribution warehouse for music and video located North of London in Enfield, was burnt to the ground yesterday during the riots happening throughout the UK. This 3-story, 20,000 square meter warehouse owned by Sony, was a major hub for physical distribution company PIAS and was holding stock for hundreds of independent music labels, many who no doubt will be devastated by this loss.

A fundraiser is being organized by Hannah Morgan who created an organization called Label Love to help these businesses. Sadly, this will have a huge effect on physical distribution of music and video as many of these labels may not be able to recover from such a financial impact.

Independent film distributors will also be greatly affected by this as the warehouse also contained the UK’s largest DVD stock.

Three Arrested Over Sony Warehouse Fire During London Riots — 25 Million Discs Destroyed
Three teenagers were arrested Wednesday in connection with the fire that destroyed Sony DADC’s warehouse during the London riots Monday, gutting the inventories of more than 150 independent labels.

According to a BBC report this morning, two of the suspects, aged 17 and 18, remained in custody while the other, 17, was released on bail. The three were among the 922 riot-related arrested reported by police authorities to the press on Thursday.
